92.4OUTSteyn to John Nyumbu, out Caught by de Kock!! Steyn finishes off things! He also picks up another 5-wicket haul. It is his 24th in Tests. Not the best of deliveries though, strays down leg, Nyumbu gets a faint edge as he looks to glance, de Kock collects it comfortably, umpire raises his finger quickly and gives the marching orders. John Nyumbu c de Kock b Steyn 2(29)256/10
82.4OUTSteyn to Chatara, out Caught by de Kock!! That's a top nut from Steyn! Chatara is livid with the decision! That ball missed everything! Poor call from the umpire. Outswinging short of length delivery on the stumps, Chatara was beaten by the late movement, looks to defend, the ball goes off the thigh to the keeper. Steyn is pumped up! Chatara points to his thigh pad suggesting that he didn't hit it. Chatara c de Kock b Steyn 22(26) [4s-4]246/9
81.4FOURPhilander to Chatara, FOUR, these are handy runs for Zimbabwe! Full and down the leg side, Chatara tries to help it away, the ball goes off the bottom edge to the fine leg fence245/8
81.3FOURPhilander to Chatara, FOUR, Chatara brings the crowd on its feet again. Full delivery on the leg stump, Chatara leans forward and clips it away through backward square leg241/8
79.5FOURDuminy to Chatara, FOUR, goes over the top again and this time sends it over the mid-wicket fielder, these are some handy runs for Zimbabwe235/8
76.4FOURD Piedt to Chatara, FOUR, Chatara goes aerial and almost hits for a six. Flighted delivery on the stumps, Chatara goes down on one knee and launches it over mid-wicket224/8

158.3OUTJohn Nyumbu to Duminy, out Caught by Brendan Taylor!! Second Zimbabwean to take a fifer on debut. He's pumped. Has his hands aloft pointing towards the sky. He kisses the badge on his shirt and celebrates with his teammates. Flighted delivery on the off stump, Duminy goes for the reverse sweep, gloves it and offers a simple catch to first slip. Duminy c Brendan Taylor b John Nyumbu 55(134) [4s-2]397/10
157.4OUTDonald Tiripano to D Piedt, out Lbw!! Aleem Dar's finger went up in a flash! Good length delivery swinging back in sharply, Piedt was foxed by the sharp late swing into him, he falls over while trying to play across the line and is hit in line with middle and leg. Was it doing too much? No, according to the umpire. In my view, that would just clip the leg stump or just miss it! D Piedt lbw b Donald Tiripano 13(28)395/9
153.4OTHERPanyangara to Duminy, 2 runs, gently turns the short of length delivery wide of backward square leg and gets to his 6th Test fifty384/8
148.5OUTJohn Nyumbu to Steyn, out Caught by Donald Tiripano!! A brisk cameo comes to an end. Nice piece of bowling from Nyumbu, gave this one plenty of air and gets it to spin away. Steyn was tempted into another big shot, only manages to get a thick outside edge that is well caught by Tiripano running back from cover. 4th wicket for Nyumbu. Steyn c Donald Tiripano b John Nyumbu 19(18) [6s-2]367/8
148.1FOURJohn Nyumbu to Duminy, FOUR, tossed up and just outside off, Duminy gets down on his knees, rolls his wrists and sweeps it in front of square on the on-side, the fielder gives chase and pulls the ball back in, his palms were touching the ropes while doing so, and a boundary is signalled364/7
146.1SIXJohn Nyumbu to Steyn, SIX, lovely shot, Nyumbu gives this one more air, Steyn gets a big stride forward, picks up the length and hoists it high over long on for a maximum353/7

76.2OUTSteyn to Panyangara, out Bowled!! The off-stump is knocked out. Steyn wraps up the Zimbabwe innings. Back of a length delivery from the South African quick, Panyangara looks to defend but the ball dips in late and shoots through to uproot the off-stump. Panyangara b Steyn 2(6)181/10
75.1OUTD Piedt to John Nyumbu, out Caught&Bowled!! Chipped back to the bowler, what a tame dismissal. Piedt now has the best match haul by a RSA spinner on debut. Tossed up just outside off, John Nyumbu seeks to drive but can only chip it back to the bowler. John Nyumbu c and b D Piedt 13(52) [6s-1]178/9
74.3OUTSteyn to Mutumbami, out Caught by de Kock!! Mutumbami has nicked off. End of a fighting effort from the Zim keeper. Another good length ball in the channel of uncertainty, Mutumbami feels for it with laden feet, the thin outside edge is gleefully gobbled up by QDK. Steyn beams like a cheshire cat. Mutumbami c de Kock b Steyn 43(69) [4s-6]178/8
73.2FOURElgar to Mutumbami, FOUR, Mutumbami fetches this from outside off and sweeps it powerfully in front of square, the ball purrs away to the fence. That raises the fifty of the partnership as well177/7
71.4FOURElgar to Mutumbami, FOUR, pushed through quicker and on off, Mutumbami goes down on one knee and slogs it away to the deep mid wicket boundary173/7
70.3FOURSteyn to Mutumbami, FOUR, crunched. Steyn errs too full and offers some room, it was a half volley in fact. Mutumbami leans forward and drives it with a bent knee, banishing the ball to the deep extra cover fence166/7
